The addition of World’s Edge map in Apex Legends: Season 3 has impressed many fans of the popular battle royale, but players have found a bug in the new arena allowing them to hide inside rocks.

The replacement for King’s Canyon in Season 3, World’s Edge, has introduced new terrain for players to experience such as the molten lava river surrounding the Thermal Station.

However, some players have managed to exploit the new battlegrounds after discovering that their characters could hide inside of rock textures on the map.

A video of the glitch was shared on the Apex Legends subreddit by u/rawnoodles1, showcasing how frustrating it can be when playing against players abusing the glitch.

The game displayed was in its final stages near the Rain Tunnel when their final opponent jumped out from the rock catching one of their teammates off guard and downing them before retreating back behind the rock texture.

Despite their best efforts, the opposing player could not be killed while he was in the texture and they had to wait for him to leave the rock and fight before being able to secure the victory.

Players have been left confused due to the nature of this glitch, with many looking to take advantage of it by setting up traps on unsuspecting players. 

Apex Legends fans have also claimed that there are other rocks in the map, outside of the one at Rain Tunnel, that can provide a similar advantage over the opposing players, allowing players to hide in the texture.

The glitch is already quite known amongst some of the battle royale’s fans and it is likely that Respawn will be looking to patch this bug in future updates.

This is not the first strange glitch that has been found since the release of Season 3 Meltdown, as an unusual bug that can damage teammates after being revived was also occurring in player’s lobbies.

With the recent arrival of Season 7, Apex Legends fans are jumping into Olympus with all of their favorite Legends. One voice actor of the non-binary Bloodhound recently shared what they sound like prior to vocal edits.

Arriving alongside the launch of Apex Legends back in 2019, Bloodhound was one of the first Legends available for players to utilize in matches. Billed as a legendary hunter, this Technological Tracker is the first non-binary character in the hit battle royale.

As the Apex seasons have progressed, the character has become increasingly powerful and seen their popularity grown.

So, in a peek behind the scenes, the voice actor behind Bloodhound has revealed how they sound before Respawn adds a few tweaks to make it sound as it does now.

The voice behind the mask

In a recent post to their TikTok account, voice actor Allegra Clark shared a clip of what the voice lines she records sound like prior to editing.

Stating that “what I do is only part of the vocal performance,” Clark details that a cool gas-mask vocal effect also pitches down her voice about two steps.

While the direction Allegra was originally given was that of an “androgynous, badass place,” she then goes on to share what Bloodhound’s iconic voice sounds like pre-editing. With a stark contrast to her regular voice, Clark’s vocal modulation and Icelandic/Old Norse accent instantly show off that recognizable cadence they have with their iconic lines.

The fans react

Shared on Reddit by IIIlandist, fans have been reacting to the non-binary character’s lines being heard without the filter.

One commenter stated: “when she said Mozambique here I felt that,” with another adding, “when she said Mozambique here I died.” Fans of the character were excited to hear how their vocal performance came about and seeing the effort of production that goes into creating the Legend.

It’s incredibly interesting seeing behind the scenes information regarding voice work and the like. This clip shared by Clark is no exception.
